I have determined that fourwheelers are expensive. My lord, all these $5000 fourwheelers, just mind boggling. Seems nobody sells beat to crap junk anymore that needs work, and when they do they think it's gold. I mean, I don't want no shiny new ATV, gimme something that's beat up and needs work for cheap. But no, can't get one unless I wanna spend $5k on a brand new one. Guess it's time to start asking around. Of course, I could say screw an ATV and just get another gun... Yep, that sounds about right.[:D]

    You can find some good deals if you're patient. I've owned several and got them all at a fair price and made money when I sold them. It may depend on where you live. Just don't buy one if it smokes!!

    I went to Honda dealer 2 trips ago and was quoted something like 4500 for a brand new 2010 Rancher 400 with electric shift 4x4.

    Look on CL and they want 5k or more for 2002 models. That's crazy. I'll buy a new Honda if I go that route.

    There out there coltpax, just gotta be patient sometimes. Around here there are a ton of great deals right now. Everyone is selling their atv's for snowmobiles and then in the summer that is reversed. Kind of funny if you ask me. [:D]

    Have no idea where you are, but if you want to travel to florida, here are a few on craigs list rather cheap...

    Course there are expensive ones too, but you said you want a cheap one to fix up...200 sound okay?...or less?

    Hey Coltpax do you ever make it to NY? I've have a buddies 350cc Honda clone in my garage. His son blew the clutch out of it the 2nd or 3rd time he rode it. It's been sitting about 2 years. It's mine now and I need the space. I'm not sure if its worth a 10 hour drive but if you ever make it this way I will part with it dirt cheap.

    Reminds me of a story I heard about Dale Earnhardt and Neil Bonnett.
    Neil bought a new 4 wheeler. Dale and Neil went riding one day. Not to far on the trail Dale ran Neil into the brush. Scratched his 4 wheeler. Neil asked, what the heck did you do that for? Dale told him, now you have the first scratch on it, you wont be afraid to ride it hard.

    I thought that was funny.
